HouseStories’ mission is to engage K-12 youth with the built environment through multi-sensory, hands-on learning powered by a unique curriculum. Learn about the framework and curriculum that turns students into urban engineers as they build adaptive and resilient cities in response to density, geography, resources, and climate.

Maureen Ferry, an architect and the creator of HouseStories, discusses the approach, research, and teaching framework behind the curriculum and showcase how the design of cities can be used to engage youth and create sustainable communities.
